The throwback shows where his true colors are too given that the shirt is from 2007/08 – four years after his father left City.

Sven-Goran Eriksson was manager and Richard Dunne was captain back then, but things are very different now

Haaland joins the reigning Premier League champions and will play under legendary manager Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium.

“It’s a proud day for me and my family,” he told mancity.com after completing his move.

“I’ve always watched City and loved doing it in recent seasons. You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances which is perfect for a player like me .

“There are so many world-class players in this team and Pep is one of the greatest managers of all time, so I think I’m in the right place to fulfill my ambitions.

“I want to score goals, win trophies and improve as a footballer and I’m confident I can do that here. It’s a great decision for me and I can’t wait to start pre-season.

The £51.1million deal comes after a stunning spell in Germany where he scored 86 goals in 89 games in two and a half seasons with Dortmund.

Now he hopes to play for the club and insisted his father’s plight and his fandom was only part of the reason he put pen to paper at Manchester.

“First of all, my dad, kinda,” Erling said, explaining his thought process.

“I was born in England. I’ve been a City fan all my life. I know a lot about the club.

“At the end, [deciding to sign was down to] two things. I feel at home here and I feel I can develop and get the most out of my game at City.

“I like the style (of play). I like attacking football. I like the positive vibe we have when City play football.

“That’s what I really like, so I think it’s a good fit.”
